Are you looking for instant relief?

Would you rather skip the Tylenol or Advil for something more natural?

Try the roller blends I’ve provided below!

I always say essential oils are magical. They have many healing properties and can be used for a plethora of natural DIYs.

Where to Apply:

When using your Essential Oil Roller Bottle Recipes for Headaches there are a few areas of application that are best. You can roll the blend on your temples, wrists, behind the ears, and to the bottom of your feet.

Your temples are a pulse point which means there are blood vessels for the essential oils to enter the bloodstream faster.

Wrists are another pulse point. If you look at the inside of your wrist, you are able to see many blood vessels close to the skin’s surface, therefore allowing you to experience results quicker.

Your mastoid pressure point is behind the ears. This pressure point can help you experience greater relief from pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Did you know that your feet have some of the largest pores on your body? This means that the pores can easily absorb the essential oils you apply to that particular spot.

It’s really up to you on where you choose to apply these Essential Oil Roller Bottle Recipes for Headaches. Try them all and determine which one works the best for you and your body. For headaches, I personally like to apply essential oils to my temples due to the pain being around the same area.

Safe Topical Application:

When applying essential oils directly to the skin, always always dilute with a carrier oil. For proper dilution ratios refer to this dilution chart.

It’s always a good idea to do a patch test on a spot of your skin before applying to other parts of your body in case a reaction happens. Avoid getting essential oils in or close to your eyes.

Ingredient Benefits:

Peppermint essential oil is one of the most commonly used oils to treat headaches. It contains menthol which can help relax muscles and ease pain.

Rosemary oil has been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years for pain relief and improvement of circulation which can help headaches.

Lavender essential oil is widely used for relaxation and stress relief.

Eucalyptus oil can open up nasal passages and clear the sinuses to help relieve tension. So if your headaches are caused by sinus issues, eucalyptus is the right oil for you!

Chamomile essential oil can help treat anxiety and insomnia, which are common causes of headaches.

Frankincense oil is also known for its calming properties therefore helping to ease headaches.

Directions:

For these Essential Oil Roller Bottle Recipes for Headaches, I used a 5 percent dilution ratio. Since I used 10 ml roller bottles, I added 15 drops of essential oil into each blend. If you use a 5 ml roller bottle, cut the essential oil drops in half.

Store in a cool, dry place away from the sun. The shelf life of these roller blends is 1-2 years.

Whenever I feel a headache coming on, I grab my headache roller and apply it to my temples. The aroma smells amazing and the benefits are spectacular!
